The origins of the festival!

Lüderitz is renowned for its superior quality crayfish, unique sea-life, natural port and the town’s rich maritime history. After thorough consultation, the Lüderitz community decided to introduce a Crayfish Festival which would be celebrated each year with the view to celebrate its rich history, sea-life and multi-cultural uniqueness. The objective was for the festival to bring the local population together at one event, attract a broader audience from around Namibia and the world and for the proceeds of the event to help the various charities that benefit the less advantaged – the event has succeeded on all fronts!

Her Worship the Mayor and the friendly *Buchters* invite you to this joyous Lüderitz event!
